Our host Ian was funny & informative from the get go. He was very patient with all the kids on board as was our unflappable captain. It was a beautiful evening, the cocktails were great and the food was best we've ever had on a restaurant cruise (chef did a fabulous job in her minute kitchen). The waiter was charming... More

From our phonecall to book, to the end of the cruise, the service was excellent. The food is delicious (we are vegetarian and well catered for) the other clients all seemed very happy with their meals. A good choice of wine. Ian gave a very well informed and at times humorous talk along the way pointing out different landmarks. I... More

We enjoyed a sunset cruise for NYE and had a fantastic evening with Noosa Cruising. Great value for money, great food, great drinks and great staff. The views along the river are spectacular and the boat was perfectly positioned for the new year’s fireworks. Definitely worth adding to your itinerary – it was nice to get away from dining on...

We enjoyed this experience very much. Ian (the owner) is lovely and funny. The service was excellent from all the staff on board. The food was pretty good. This was the best dining experience we had in Noosa.

We had one of our best Christmas Party's yet this year on the Noosa Cruising Restaurant. Ian and his team made the organisation easy and the night so much fun. Everyone has commented on the great service and food. We devoured the deluxe buffet whilst cruising the Noosa river for 3 hours. Fantastic value. Would highly recommend!!

Thanks Kate - you did the hard work: organising a work Christmas party can be like herding cats! As to me making you laugh, I'm not sure if that was my dancing or my singing! Glad you all had a fantastic time and that your colleagues thanked you for the "best Christmas Party yet"...we'll just have to beat it next... More

We had the best time on the Noosa Cruiser Restaurant and Bar tonight. The food was lovely, couldn't fault it. The staff was great, Ian was so funny and very entertaining. I would thoroughly recommend this to everyone. The best meal I have had in a very long time.

Thank you to Noosa Cruising for a wonderfully relaxing cruise lunch for my surprise birthday. The food was lovely and the drinks were flowing! Great friendly and fun service. Many thanks!

NoosaCruiser, Owner at Noosa Cruising Restaurant, responded to this review

I trust it was the lunch cruise, rather than the fact you were having a birthday - that was the surprise?! Apparently they are so popular that people are having birthdays once a year nowadays ;o) As for me, I've had a few too many and think I might start owning up to them only every other year from now...
